I pun, or attempt to, at the best and worst of times. It's not listed as an official coping mechanism but it is one I employ along with snark, sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek humor. This disclaimer is being given because I will be speaking about our family car and how it's gone its merry way, away … Continue reading Car-rying on
The Dementia Diagnosis
One of Red's cousins will be visiting us soon and I was telling TO about him. He'll be meeting a brand new set of cousins and an aunt he's not seen before so I was trying to give him some background while we set out for errands this morning. This uncle of his is a … Continue reading The Dementia Diagnosis
Accurate But Politically Incorrect
TO is learning about genetics and most things associated with them. I'm ashamed to say that barring being familiar with terms, I can't recollect the definition without looking it up and most times I look them up with a keywords "for dummies" because they have the easiest definitions to understand. Unless I understand them properly, … Continue reading Accurate But Politically Incorrect
Let’s Catch Up
It has been a while since I wrote. Been a while since I even thought of writing, to be honest. In the words of John Lennon, "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans" and it it holds true even now, decades after he said it. I turned a year older recently. Had … Continue reading Let’s Catch Up
Road Trip: Day Three
We took in the sights around Mysore a bit and then drove to Madikeri in Coorg.

Apparently if you deny a child … Continue reading Road Trip: Day Three
Road Trip: Day One

TO luckily has his spring break starting today...and yes while it *is* a funny concept in Hyderabad where we have Hot, Wet and Cold as the primary seasons; it's a good opportunity for us to plan getaways. TO diving into the bag of snacks within … Continue reading Road Trip: Day One

The Side Window
For those who are fans of the Hitchcockian thriller, this isn't an attempt to ride on the coattails of it. But I was hard-pressed for creativity and my brain doesn't function well without caffeine so an "inspiration" is what I'm working with since there are some similarities between me in my current predicament and Jimmy … Continue reading The Side Window
Kiss Your Right Bicep!
Photo by Diego PH on Unsplash Red is a very good teacher. Primarily because he wants the person he's teaching anything to, to genuinely learn and enjoy themselves in the process even if it's something that they didn't seek out on their own. The prime example of that is the time spent with TO and getting his concepts … Continue reading Kiss Your Right Bicep!
Hey..Don’t Mention It!
Everyone in my family knows how I cling to my coffee. The bros-before-hos kind of a thing but with coffee instead. After a quick siesta a little while ago, I made my usual non-verbal gestures to Red and asked him to make me a cup so I could shake off the afternoon meal from my … Continue reading Hey..Don’t Mention It!
